Medical Emergencies and
UVHS works closely with
Douglas County Animal Control Officers and our
to provide assistance in animal abuse or neglect
cases. We have helped with medical
costs for many injured dogs, cats, starving
horses, llamas and a burro.
If you have extra time on your
hands and want to help make a difference in
Douglas County. Have we got a job for you
- Our thrift shoppe is currently looking for
people to volunteer in the shoppe. We are
open Monday thru Saturday 10 am to 6 pm.
If you have some time, come in and talk to John
Vermeer the manager and help make a difference.
Some of our members have taken
their dogs to visit local nursing homes and care
facilities, giving that special comfort that
only an animal can provide.
UVHS and Animal Control take
dogs to visit the schools. The students are
humane treatment and handling of animals. Since
the inception of this program,
juvenile animal abuse has dropped in Douglas
County by 77%.

Effective immediately, Douglas County
will begin more aggressively enforcing
the laws regarding animals left
unattended in hot cars. While this has
always been enforced, it seems
impossible to get through to some that
this is a dangerous move and law
enforcement struggles to respond to all
the calls during hot days.
In agreement with DCSO Animal Control,
Douglas County Counsel and the Douglas
County District Attorney's office, law
enforcement will now be citing a $260
violation for every pet left unattended
for any length of time in a vehicle on a
day over 80 degrees. ie, two dogs would
be a $520 fine. Any violation over $500
is subject to a FTA warrant if the
person does not appear. In other words,
this can add up quickly. LEAVE YOUR PETS
